Content and Content Library Folder Object Import and Export

Use the library.xsd schema to import and export content and content libraries.

When importing or exporting content and content libraries, keep the following in mind:

To import a content asset part of a private library, navigate to site > Merchant Tools > Content > Import & Export and continue the export. The <library> tag does not take library-id as one of its attributes. To import a content asset part of a shared library, add the shared library ID under <library> tag with library-id attribute.
